I just bought a custom IP address from Webfaction for an HTTPS app. Is there any advantage to moving all of my apps over to the dedicated IP address? I tried to move one over to the new IP address and then it broke. Can I create custom apps on the dedicated IP address in the panel, or do I need to log a support ticket to do it?

Thanks for your help, Kevin

The advantages of hosting your Custom Application (listening on port) on the dedicated IP address are:

  1. You can use an SSL certificate for your application (all SSL certificates require a dedicated IP)
  2. You can get direct access to your application's port (we can open any ports for you on a dedicated IP)

You can create applications on the dedicated IP address -- simply select that IP address in the website record mounting the application. When you tried this, it probably didn't "break"; more likely you were just running into some DNS issues.

If you end up wanting any ports opened on your dedicated IP, just open a support ticket and let us know.

Hope that helps!

Thanks! Yeah it does - it was a DNS issue, it's working much better now.
